The topics of the sixth Future Investment Initiative (FII) forum, which will be held in Riyadh from Oct. 25–27, are equality in an unequal world, balancing success with sustainability, and the rise of geo-economics.

The theme of the event, which will take place at the King Abdulaziz International Conference Centre, is "Investing in Humanity: Enabling a New Global Order".

It will also focus on areas like artificial intelligence and robotics, education, health care, and the environment.

More than 6,000 CEOs, policymakers, investors, business owners, and other leaders from around the world are expected to attend. There will also be in-depth discussions about new ways to invest globally, critical analyses of industry trends, and how important it is for world leaders to connect.

The event's theme is the same as it was last year, which was to give people who are hard hit by supply shocks, inflation, energy crises, and geopolitical conflicts.

On the first day of the event, individuals will speak about important economic trends like the meta-industrial revolution, the importance of global investment, the super-app breakthrough, and how AI and robotics can be used.

After the first meeting, the FII will talk about its geo-economic worries and the responsibility that companies and investors have.

The event's schedule will focus on energy and its role in making the world more sustainable, making it easier to switch from harmful fossil fuels to more eco-friendly ones.

The Race to Zero initiative was set up by the UN to cut carbon emissions in half by the end of this decade. At the event, there will also be more discussion about how investments and money can help achieve this goal.

With the rise of innovation and digital worlds, technology will also be one of FII's main pillars.

The FII will talk about how augmented reality, virtual reality, and the metaverse can speed up digital transformation.

There will also be talks about how important and changing the film industry is, as well as how venture capitalists will lead the next wave of innovation.

The plan also includes education technology, health technology, and gaming, since each of these fields will help shape the future.

The discussions will touch on macroeconomic issues such as growing inflation and future challenges.

Also, the auto industry deserves special attention because it helps keep the environment, society, and the economy in good shape.

On the last day of the event, leaders will shift the conversation to the importance of investing in sustainability, beginning with the power of an economic investment.

Also, venture capitalists and investors can have a huge impact on making a new global order that will help make the future sustainable. The FII will discuss critical factors for each type of economic investment.

Founded in 2019, the Future Investment Initiative Institute is a nonprofit organisation run by the Saudi Public Investment Fund built on environmental, social, and governance principles.
